Actually just a bit low. Normal would be 15 funny degrees. I live just a bit up the river valley hill from the river. Lots of green stuff so often airial pictures don't see the houses. On a good clear night the temperature drops nicely.

High today 86 low 64 so not quite as cold. Higher up gets colder.

My shop now has a white roof. (Thanks). So the one ton of airconditioning (Primary secondary 1/3 ton) keeps things quite comfortable until someone leaves the garage door open.

Simon -- your neck of the woods -- Millvale PA -- under water at the twist of the Allegheny River.

Thanks for your concern. Near here yes. Very hilly terrain, 12 blocks down the road from my shop a few feet of water, my shop high and dry. But it did flood in 2004.

If my house overlooking the river floods look for animals two by two boarding a boat!

What has happened is the storms normally come in from the west and continue to travel east. Last week they came up from the south which means more moisture and they stayed in place for hours.

40 or so inches of rain per year typical and some storms have dropped 4-6" by themselves.

Of course everything is quite green except for the trees that have fallen.

I do watch the river. Flood stage is 21'. It is actually staying around 13'. So all the flooding is actually just rain run off. The river is controlled by the Corp of Engineers so a river flood is no longer a seasonal event.

Oakmont is high land, grooved and sloped down to the river. The "Riverview" section may now be river-washed. Most of the housing is well uphill.

Like me. I'm a mile off the ocean, high tides, and occasional hurricanes. But also 110 feet elevation, and no land >10 feet higher than me.

I drove through one of the great Midwest floods of the 1980s. Raised roads through flat land with nothing but water all around. Scary.

I drove through the recently minted I-80 in the early 1970's (back when they had slit trenches at the rest-stops!) and the mud was up in the trees!

I go back and forth on I-80 almost every other week. All in, it's just about 2 hours more than flying EWR-CLE, and I can listen to the MetOpera or Laugh-Out-Loud comedy on the Sirius.
